Before The Process Starts 

Some home projects can be completed as a DIY, but when it comes to a home renovation, one should avoid a DIY and instead get a professional and reliable team in to complete the work to the highest quality. We understand that finding a professional and reliable team can be a difficult task so we have a few points you should consider: 

  • The best is always busy – this means a slow response is not a bad sign! 
  • Never do business with a buddy – to avoid awkward arguments and unfinished work, opt for professionals! 
  • You get what you pay for – experience can be costly! 

During The Process 

If you are looking to get the best results out of your project, there are a few simple steps you will want to make sure you follow. The first is that you never want to go on vacation at this time as your contractor needs your input to help make decisions on your project. As well, it’s wise to pay frequent visits to the site so that you can ensure everything is in order.  

You should also prepare for your budget to be exceeded. Although this may sound dreaded, oftentimes there are unforeseen circumstances that tend to cause this. This means having a slush account aside is important. You can also prepare for your project to run a little longer than expected. Sometimes a few extra days are needed to complete the finishing touches. 

After The Process 

Now that the home renovation is finished, it’s important that you go in and inspect everything. This is because if you catch it now, the contractor will be able to come back and fix it. Hiring a third party to inspect is also an idea to find problems you may not have found on your own. Creating a “Punch List” of all the detailed information pending to the contractor can help keep you organized and remember what is to be done.
